impacts and considerations on applicable financial planning topics when someone is a nonresident alien or a resident alien. In addition, additional context when those in either status are looking to become a US citizen (and additionally to stay and retire in the US) or alternatively when those in either status never intend to become a US citizen (ie a ~ definite time frame to move away and retire outside of the US)
it would be great to have some pathfinders related to Americans living abroad. It is a niche I realize, but some things related to Americans abroad stay the same irrespective of what country they are living it.
A decision tree to assist with tax-filing rules (NR alien vs. Resident alien), presence test, etc.

This is actually one of my firm's specialty areas, and I'd be happy to help contribute to the design / discussion here. There would probably need to be several different flowcharts and checklists under the category of "international", including: 1/ gifts for foreign spouses, 2/ foreign grantor trusts, 3/ considerations for US taxpayers living outside the US (e.g., can you contribute to an IRA), 4/ pre-immigration planning to the US, etc.
